Gospel singer Owen Mwatia aka Daddy Owen has vowed to keep his next relationship a secret after netizens asked whether he has a new catch.

This is after the Vanity singer uploaded a photo of himself in the company of a lady.

He first clarified that she was not the one before adding that even when he gets a partner he will keep it under wraps.

“Kuna bloggers wameshinda wakinitumia hizi picha kwa DM wanauliza "is she the one?" Wacha niwajibu hapa hapa... si yeye!! Na ata ile siku nitapata mtu aki nitamficha ka…” he wrote.

In July 2021, the singer spoke about separating from his ex-wife Farida and how it affected him, adding that at some point he battled depression.

“Before this story happened I was in depression for a very long time and it was really tough,” he said at the time.

"When I spoke about my mental health publicly, some branded me a weak man...but for me, the most important thing I discovered when I was going through depression is that I lacked peace. I was looking for peace, looking to talk to someone who could understand what I was going through…and it reached a point where I became so desperate and that's the worst thing because people now look at you as a weak person," he said during a past interview.

Later he told his fans that he was not planning to date immediately because he had to fix himself first to ensure he does not carry any baggage to his next relationship.

He said that 2020 was a particularly difficult year for him as it was the beginning of his emotional turmoil and he had to take stock of his actions.

"Through the whole year I have been an emotional wreck! Living alone made it harder! Making me ask myself so many questions! Like am I a man enough? Am I poor or rich? Is all that necessary?" Owen said.

The singer said his situation made him buy unnecessary expensive things, travel, book hotels, and even flirt with people just to prove a point.

"Am I proud of it? NO! I felt terrible and horrible, and anything about me flirting or anything of that sort came from me being affected emotionally... had self-doubts about myself!" he said.

Owen, however, added that he had apologized to all those he had wronged and sought forgiveness from God.
